Funding Program: CPF

What is CPF?

Under the Community Project Fund (CPF), CDEM provides grants of up to $1,000 for start-up projects that contribute to community capacity development. These funds are provided once a year to each bilingual municipality that is a member of the AMBM (Association of Manitoba Bilingual Municipalities), or their CDC, and sometimes at the request of incorporated community organizations.

It should be noted that:

  • The CDEM contribution can only represent 50% of the value of the project up to $1,000.
  • There are no deadlines for submitting an application, but proposals are considered three times a year: January 31, June 30, and October 31.

Eligibility criteria

  • Be a municipality or a CDC
  • Demonstrate the community and economic impact of the project
  • Include evidence of the support from the municipality, or the CDC, by providing a council resolution stating that the project was established as the community project submitted for the current year.
  • Include a quote or invoice showing the costs of the project.
  • If possible, involve several partners and mobilize community resources.

Success Stories: Testimonials and Articles

“As a charity, the Flavie-Laurent Centre relies heavily on the generosity of others. The $1,000 funding we received from CDEM in 2020 is an example of this generosity. This has been a boost to our marketing efforts to launch a large-scale donation campaign with an ambitious goal of raising more than $2 million. This is the amount associated with the construction costs of the future warehouse on Archibald Street.”
